Bi-weekly Wiki Club Brussels

The Wiki Club Brussels are bi-weekly meetings where Wikipedia/Wikimedia editors can work on articles in Wikipedia, ask questions and learn how others are editing Wikipedia or other sister projects.

Over the years we have learned that people who are new to editing Wikimedia projects (Wikipedia, wiktionary, wikiversity, wikispecies, wikiquote, etc.) often like to meet other editors so that they can help each other. Editing Wikimedia projects together often leads to better results and more fun. This gives also the opportunity to ask questions to more experienced editors, and get immediate answers.

Participants often focus on women in the tech industry (GenderGap), but participants are free to write about other topics.

You can write in English, or in your own language. You do not necessarily have to start a new article, you can amend also an existing page.

When you start a new article, please do so in your user namespace. When the article is ready, it can be renamed into the main namespace.
